Step 1) Using an electric mixer, cream together peanut butter, butter, and sugars. Add eggs and almond extract. Blend well.

Step 2) Using a heavy wooden spoon, stir in salt, baking soda, baking powder, and flour (one cup at a time).

Step 3) Roll rounded teaspoons of dough into balls, and roll balls in sugar. Place balls onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper, leaving at least 2 inches between balls of dough.

Step 4) Press a Hershey’s Kiss into the center of each ball of dough.

Step 5) Bake cookies in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 – 12 minutes or until cookies are set and the bottoms are just beginning to brown. Remove from oven and immediately press 1/4 of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup into each cookie, right next to the Hershey’s Kiss. Allow cookies to rest on the pan for 1 minute, before transferring to a wire rack.
